    So, about 15 hours ago I ran Windows Update and let it run like normal. When I woke up, I see the Starting Windows boot screen with a Fatal Error... I don't remember the rest and didn't think to write it down. So I hard shut down the computer. When I started it back up I receive the Windows has had a critical error and it gives 2 options. Neither one works.

    - Repair Startup (Run Windows Repair) - This option loads windows files but blue screens with

    The exact error details are as under :

    A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

    ntfs.sys

    PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

    Technical information

    stop : 0X00000050 (0XFFFFF9800B044237, 0x0000000000000000, 0xFFFFF88001329AE4, 0x0000000000000002)

    NTFS.SYS - ADDRESS

    FFFFF88001329AE4 BASE AT FFFFF88001221000 DATE STAMP 4ASBC14F


    The other option is:

    - Start windows normally - Turns into a boot load cycle that auto restarts after the Windows Splash Screen


    I've tried every single F8 function to no avail. including with the Windows Install DVD as the Boot Drive and also I've tried Alt+F10 to revert to factory settings, blue screen as well. I can't boot into safe mode or anything else for that matter. The install disc get to the blue background of windows 7 but no menus and then blue screens.

    I'm lost at this point and need help. If you need any specs beyond the ones below I'll be happy to oblige.

    Boot into a Linux distro. Backup. Reinstall.

    I just want to thank you, AuthenticGinger. For some reason, this idea completely slipped my mind in all the stress and pandamonium. I was able to download and burn uBuntu 10.10 to a CD and boot off the CD. Then, I recovered the files I needed onto a pendrive. The computer actually needed a good wipe anyway. I formatted the drive and did a fresh install of both uBuntu and Windows. Now, I'm on my "new" Windows computer.

    Thank you so much.

    Have a great rest of the day.

    After reading it again, you're right it was a little over the top. Anyway, yes, it worked and helped. Thanks.
